Boring week. Looking for some interesting reading.

Hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, IMO he's in no place right now in his career to be a role-model/spokesman.

Most likely he was just practicing sitting while the rest of the team is out on the field..

He's lost some cred in my book.

In over 25 yrs. of teaching and coaching never had a kid refuse to stand for the pledge or the anthem.

I thought what he did was most ironic.

His conduct was no different from what many Republicans have done for the last 25 years: Emphasize the negative about our great country and our great people (great, not perfect).

I briefly watched the third quarter last Friday, until the beginning of the fourth, when my host John decided to change the venue to Toronto (he bought a higher-priced ticket that day for four new Murdoch Mysteries) because the Pack seemed to have the game in hand.

We heard no mention from either Ryan nor Robinson during the break. But that's not their job, is it? Cosell would feel much differently.

So I had to look this up.

Me, I'm simple. CK* is only one guy, so he can't possibly speak for the entire team. But he's got guts and he's young and not jaded news junkies like we.

I wish him the best and semper fidelis, Faithful!

Rah!

It's really no big deal, is it? Just a slow news day after all.

*I really have to stop confusing the names Colin and Justin...I originally typed JK. So let him run for POTUS when he's older, if he's still so idealistic.

Exactly. Only the opinions of entertainers (which includes professional athletes) running for public office matter to me.

I understand the "why" he's protesting, but not the "how."

Best to get psyched for the upcoming game, and to not get your teammates questioning you before the opening whistle blows.

Sez he's going to sit for more Nat'l Anthems.
I wonder.

Reilly, no one expected a mental match for Terry Bradshaw back then. His young legs and nerve were enough. Smarts come later.

Rag up, dude.

I reserve the right to support the fact that its his choice while also taking advantage of my ability to condemn his actions.

If people in this country would return to realizing that some sh#t is going to happen that they don't agree with and it doesn't mean they should race to the capital house steps in an effort to get it outlawed we would all be a little better off.

I support his first amendment rights, but why is he now just becoming interested in black lives. Why wasn't he speaking out years ago?

Francis Scott Key was a slave owner.
The third verse, that we don't use, celebrates freed slaves being killed after fighting for the British, or the Canadians if you prefer. Patriotism shouldn't be forced at the point of a gun like North Korea.

Just cheap lip service sitting down ....

After all the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms in wars and peace to make this country so great.

It's an insult and disrespect to all those regardless how the politard loons think.

One should stand with respect and use a different medium to voice their concerns ......
